    Ahhhhhhhhh well

    Working improvements grants you points towards great people.

    Note 1: "Improvements" can be interested as you wish (say, farms adjacent to pastures, custom houses on a coast tile, etc.)
    Note 2: the GP points must be earned directly. So things like "Working farms increases great scientist points from specialists" doesn't count.
    (It'll be kinda too broad otherwise, and besides, I love making things complicated :p)

    I think this might work, though it's probably far from balanced and/or not good in any way.
    I tried to play on the Underground Paramilitary side of the Irgun.
    May the Great Natan forgive any historical inaccuracy.

    HA HA, you played this one right in my cards Natan! (I recently made a design and posted it in the General Design Resource forum! That being said I did make some changes since (oh, and see the 'disclaimer below')

    Tiki Tak Tribe (Tiki Tong)
    *Golden Bananas (from OTiger's DK-mod) provide twice as many points towards a Tiki than normal Banana Resources
    **or Golden Banana Resrouce if OTiger's DK-mod is active


    Okay, I might have cheated since it only works for Plantations on Banana Resources...or well... Banana Resources... If it's too cheaty, I'll try to submit something else :crazyeye:

    Thats pretty much what I was aiming for :D
    (Civilization- wise... I was aiming to an ancient Israel, but I suppose that works too.)

    I think that the UB is brilliant, but while I like how the UA synergizes with the UU, its kinda too OP... Nearly every city will have a farm next to it in the late game, so you should add a "may only apply once for each civ" and you might wanna add the spawning effect to the slik or make it plantation based.

    "Haiyal Kravi" is a bit unfitting for an "underground" civ, but this design is pretty accurate IMO, even though the Revisionist movement is something I.... Wouldn't associate myself with, to say the least :p

    Thank you very much! :D
    I made the Hayil Kravi only work on the first time you declare a war against a civilization. I think it already has its share of synergy with the Slik, as the units are built in the city and not on the adjacent farm (thus gaining the promotion).

    I was considering A Shadows Over Innistrad thing with Avacyn as the leader and the Flameblade Angel as the UU.

    Capital: Yogyakarta
    Leader: Hamengku Buwono IX


    UA: Keraton Perjuangan / Palace of Resistance
    Can assign a Specialist to work on a Great Person Tile Imrovements. Great Person Tile Improvements also provides +1 Great General Point. Units gain +15% defense bonus and generate +1 Culture when stationed in them.

    UU: Prawira
    Slightly weaker replacement for Musketman (-2 ATK). When produced with additional XP (the one gained from Buildings), gain one random level 1 promotion for free.

    UB: Alun-Alun
    Replaces Garden. Same effect, but no terrain requirements and gives 10 XP to newly trained Units.

    This design does not fit the mechanic... I've specified that the yield must come from the improvement, directly. In your design, GP points are granted because of improvements, not from them.

    (but changing your UAs last part to "GP tiles grant" would fix it...)

    I JUST knew, that with Natan of all the people here as the theme-maker, that some kind of misunderstanding would arise from the wording. However, consider the design now corrected (just to be safe) even tho I dont understand the difference you are trying to explain just now.

    I believe that the problem was the fact that the UA stated that the units generate GPP, while the challenge specifically asks for the terrain to provide it.

    Also, I think it's unclear whether the Specialist or the Great Person Tile Improvement provide the Great General points, but that's probably my problem.

    Well... As I've said, I love making things complicated.
    Anyway, honorary submission:

    Athens (Pericles)
    UA: Age of Pericles
    +2 :c5goldenage: Golden age points and +2 :c5culture: culture from academies and holy sites, and +1 of each if the improvement was founded before medieval era. During :c5goldenage: golden games, gain :c5greatperson: great writer points from those improvements, and +3% :c5greatperson GP generation per each :c5citystate: city state ally.

    UU: Epic Poet
    Replaces great writer. Each one of its :greatwork: great works increases the :c5influence: influence you get from quests and gifts by 4%. :c5culture: Culture from treatise is increased by +4% for each :c5citystate: city state ally.

    UB: Odeon
    Unlike the Amphitheatre it replaces, its great work slot may provide additional +2 :c5culture: culture or :c5happy: happiness. Contains a writer specialist that grants +2 :c5science: science when filled, doubled after entering the industrial era.

    Vote?
    New forum layout is slightly confusing.

    +1 for kul's Ngayogkarata
    (It looks kinda funny how every smiley in between brackets (20 :c5production: ) in the design posts are replaced by (20 :c5production:). Let's hope they fix that ;))
